If anyone with an Android phone is looking for a super simple checklist app, I recommend checking out “Simplist” It doesn't need any permissions, is free, and doesn't have any fancy extras. You just write down your task(s) and when you are done, you long hold the item to delete it. It is exactly what I was looking for. This is his first app being published and is working on a few others. He doesn't know I'm putting this out there for him so if you'd like to check it out, here is the link.
